SERI (the Stanford Existential Risks Initiative) is opening up our (virtual, 10-week) summer research internship globally (it was only open to Stanford students in 2020), and applications close on Wednesday April 21st 11:59 PM PDT.
I wanted to highlight this opportunity on the forum since there aren't many longtermism and existential-risk focused research/internship opportunities this summer for junior researchers. Most notably, FHI's Summer Research Fellowship is not open for 2021, so researchers/staff from FHI have graciously offered to collaborate with SERI to help run our program (thank you FHI!). *We extended our deadline to Wednesday April 21st due to our conference this weekend - so please disregard the earlier deadline for our program on FHI's website, apologies for the confusion.
(Deadline Wednesday, April 21st, 11:59 PM PDT)
To learn more about existential risks and the kinds of project proposals we’d be excited to see, we recommend this link with advice for applicants.
If you’d like to ask more about potential project ideas and what we’re looking for, check out our office hours schedule here.
Please share this opportunity with EA group members/others who might be a good fit, thank you so much!
